    I interpret ice dancing as boring. Bring on Rocky and Ivan Dragof.

    This USA women's hockey team is ****ing ridiculous.

    3 goals in 55 seconds vs Switzerland, and it's 5-0 1st period.

    Womens hockey is a joke. Only Canada and the US have good teams. The girls rec team from the city I live in could crush all the teams other than Canada and the US.

    I got a kick out of the Russian figure skaters giving praise to Putin after they won. "Thank you to our great president." Lol. He thanks you for winning. Now he doesn't have to gas your families.

    It is European bias when it comes to gender roles and sports. In Europe girls are traditionally steered away from team sports--which are seen for boys only. You see the same thing in soccer. Most traditional European soccer powers do not have a very good women's soccer team. Germany is the only exception I can think of. Instead the powers in women's soccer are USA, China, Japan, Canada, Brazil, Argentina.
